Post #22 – Gratitude and New Beginnings

by Aimee on December 17, 2018

 Post #22 - Gratitude and New Beginnings

This has been quite a year for Black Platinum Solar & Electric and one that has kept us very busy! We want to thank our clients for your continued patronage. It is so rewarding to work in a trade that you love – a trade that helps its customers realize their goals and also benefits the environment. We are grateful for all of the support from our past, repeat, and current customers which has helped our business continue to grow and evolve.

With this evolution, we wanted to share some exciting news! As the old adage goes, like father like son. Our son, John Alan Black (aka Johnny)—who has learned the electrical trade from John Sr. for the past 20 years—has followed his dad into the electric industry. He began working for Black Platinum Solar & Electric over a year and a half ago. Johnny has grown to love the solar industry, and in July, he began taking charge of many facets of the company. He’s become indispensable to the company over the past year, which has enabled John to ease up on the reigns and even take some vacation time! At the start of 2019, Johnny will become the new owner of Black Platinum Solar & Electric.  John Sr. and Toni Black will continue to remain involved in the company throughout the coming year providing consultation and operations support; however, they will also finally begin their progression into retirement.

John Black had always dreamt of having his own company, one that could stay in his family and be passed on to the next generations. He is so pleased to have Johnny carry on the family business!

Johnny brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in the areas of business management and administration, team leadership, customer consultation, electrical wiring, and the full solar installation process.  Johnny, an Arizona State University graduate, has held sales and management positions with various companies in the valley, specializing in the construction field.  Prior to starting with Black Platinum Solar & Electric, Johnny was a regional manager for a specialty contracting company, with multiple branch locations in the Southwest states. He is looking forward to this exciting and challenging new direction for his life. Johnny, his wife Cyndi, and their three children Melia, Easton, and Carter live in Glendale, Arizona.

Thank you all for your continued support and we look forward to helping you with all of your solar electric needs in the coming year. We wish you a lovely holiday season and a very happy new year!
